Small scale mail->news gateways work far better than the reverse, and Im
sure people would set those up. The list is also accessible via the web
using the dejanews service. Trying to drive multiple news gateways off
a mailing list doesn't work very well, the reverse is fairly sane as
usenet is designed to have loops and duplicate filtering.
